Seems to be good news indeed, but you never know.
Might be an inspiration and a martyr.  Might not be.  Who knows?

He died, and he doesn't matter anymore. What we'll see next is Taleban splinters into two or more groups and are more eager to fight each other than fighting Pakistan Army or the US. Gangs are gangs. Until one rises up and controls all, they will be minor problem.
