The Hill:

Along with Iraq war veterans and concerned citizens, Iraq Campaign 2008 says it will unfurl a 50-foot replica "Mission Accomplished" banner at the White House tomorrow, marking the five-year anniversary of President Bush's now-infamous speech...The unfurling is slated to occur at 10:30 a.m. on Pennsylvania Ave.

In related news, the aircraft carrier where Bush made his speech five years ago, the USS Abraham Lincoln, departed early April for a seven-month deployment in the Persian Gulf.
