AEI President Arthur Brooks announced today that General David H. Petraeus will be presented with the 2010 Irving Kristol Award. General Petraeus, who commands the United States Central Command, will deliver the Kristol lecture on Thursday, May 6, 2010.

The yearly award is presented at the Institute's annual dinner to an individual, selected by the AEI Council of Academic Advisers, who has made exceptional intellectual or practical contributions to improved government policy, social welfare, or political understanding.

Past Irving Kristol Award winners include Charles Murray (2009), Bernard Lewis (2007) and Charles Krauthammer (2004). At AEI's 2003 annual dinner, where Allan H. Meltzer was honored, President George W. Bush delivered a historic address on the need for a new government in Iraq and the role it could play in spreading democracy in the Middle East.
