The Pentagon issued a stern warning Friday to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi: We will find you and you "will taste justice."

Army Col. Steve Warren, military spokesman in Baghadad, made the comment at a press conference, adding that he knew al-Baghdadi has been moving between Syria and Iraq, the Washington Times reports.

"I don't know if that justice will look like a Hellfire missile or it will look like a dark prison cell."

The U.S. has had some success with eliminating ISIS leaders, Warren said, and listed Abu Musab Zarqawi, who was killed in a bomb strike in 2006. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said that ISIS' finance minister Abd al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli had been killed, according to a March 25 report on CNN

Baghdadi orchestrated suicide bombings in Iraq after U.S. forces left in 2011. When civil war broke out in Syria, he captured territory there and began to form the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.

"He was once a normal person," Baghdadi's ex-wife Saja el-Dulaimi said, in a report in the Washington Post

"Whether we take them off and slam them into a dark cell somewhere or put a Hellfire missile at his location, either one of those would make us equally happy," said Warren.

"This is a terrorist who has to go," said Warren. "We're in the business of taking terrorists off the battlefield."
