Bonnie and Clyde's propaganda coup

On American Thinker:

The New York Times published a seductive photo (here) on its front page of the 17-year old baby-faced girl who blew herself up on a crowded Moscow subway, taking 39 other commuters with her to paradise, and her 30-year old killer husband, both wielding pistols. The Times notes that the photo:

is deeply repugnant to most people but also likely to be embraced by other extremists as a propaganda coup, a kind of Bonnie and Clyde of the insurgency.

What greater propaganda coup than appearing on the front page of the New York Times?
