Haissam Haqqani was a former high priority target and Taliban leader.


Haqqani fought in the Soviet-Afghan War and was a long-time client of Pakistan's ISI. The hunt for Haqqani consumed a good deal of Carrie Mathison's time when she served as station chief in Islamabad, and was responsible for the death of one of her assets (his own nephew) and for the terrorist attack on the US embassy.

Hiding out in Kabul, he meets with his son Jalal and admits that he wants peace in Afghanistan. He later turns himself over to Abdul Qadir G'ulom, who puts him on trial and switches judges so that he is found guilty and sentenced to death for his crimes. Although initially given a stay of execution, Abdul Qadir G'ulom went back on his word and ordered his men to shoot him dead.
