MESSAGE TO THE WASHINGTON POST
I am contacting you to express my personal objections to your decision to characterize ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an “austere and religious scholar” in the headline your October 27, 2019 obituary. This editorial decision is particularly shocking in that the obituary itself noted that Baghdadi “embraced a kind of extreme brutality,” “reveled in ghoulish displays of violence” and blessed turning “female captives into sex slaves.”
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was the world’s most brutal terrorist. Regardless of ideology, political affiliation or personal background, all Americans were equally outraged by ISIS’ savagery and inhumanity and celebrated this successful American military intervention.
Your editorial decision represents a grievous mistake by your publication which compromises the Washington Post’s credibility. This is not a situation to be considered lightly if you hope to restore your reputation and the public’s trust.
Hold the Liberal Media Accountable
After the brave members of our military and intelligence community executed President Trump’s order to strike ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Washington Post inexplicably published an obituary describing the world’s most wanted terrorist an “austere religious scholar.”
ISIS is a ruthless terrorist organization that has savagely killed hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children. For one of America’s leading media outlets to ignore al-Baghdadi’s legacy of terrorism and human atrocity is beyond comprehension.
Please take a moment to automatically submit a letter to the Washington Post’s editors expressing our shared disgust at their editorial decision. Together, we can take a stand against the liberal media and their attempt to undermine the values we all share as Americans.
Thank you for getting involved.
