DOVER A.F.B (WKZO) -- The last American Soldier to be counted as dead in Iraq was from Michigan. He had been missing since 2006, and was finally confirmed dead this weekend with the recovery and identification of his body. Staff Sgt. Ahmed Kousay al-Taie was an Iraqi born U.S. citizen living in Ann Arbor when he became an interpreter. He snuck off base in 2006 to visit his Iraqi wife in Baghdad and was kidnapped by militiamen, and subsequent negotiations failed to free him. Over 200 rescue missions were also attempted, but all failed. Details about the discovery of his body were not released. His remains were identified at Dover AFB.
