Haissam Haqqani is 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 Matheson'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.
