Washington Post changes their headline lionizing Al-Baghdadi an "austere religious scholar with no aptitude for fighting" and painting him as a martyr.
They are more complimentary about an actual terrorist than they ever were about the president
How did this get past the editors?

Because many people are still in shocked disbelief
"Austere religious scholar with wire-frame glasses"
"Mr. Baghdadi maintained a canny pragmatism"
"Acquaintances would remember him as a shy, nearsighted youth who liked soccer"
Washington Post has changed the headline not once, not twice, but three times. Because they must be new to reporting on Islamic terrorist criminals and serial murderers and rapists.
