Louise Mirrer, President and CEO of the New-York Historical Society, 
stated, "We are ... pleased to recognize General Petraeus for his 
groundbreaking work in Iraq, his dynamic approach to 
counterinsurgency, his advocacy of a comprehensive civil-military 
approach, and his encouragement of strategies that resolve problems 
through political processes rather than violence."

Last year we were out there because they honored Henry Kissinger, so 
we must need a louder protest to get them to stop honoring war criminals!

Resisters League.
There will be some signs or bring your own!
