David Estes is the ambitious Director of the Counterterrorism Center of the CIA. When Carrie causes a diplomatic incident by sneaking into an Iraqi prison to speak to Hasan Ibrahim, he pulls her out of the field and sits her behind a desk at Langley. He takes some personal credit for the rescue of Sgt. Nicholas Brody, which scores him brownie points with the current President of the United States. Thus he is frustrated when Carrie attempts to link Brody to Abu Nazir.
Personal life and relationshipsEdit
Estes hints that some of his anger toward Carrie is caused by a relationship they had that ended up in his wife leaving him to live in Palm Beach, Florida. Because of this he now sees his children only twice a year.
