Obama’s Faith in Pelosi Unshaken, Gibbs Says

President Barack Obama retains confidence in Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) amid the uproar over whether she was informed in 2002 about the CIA’s use of harsh interrogation techniques, according to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

Gibbs made the statement in answer to a reporter’s question. He otherwise refused to comment on the dispute.

Pelosi last week charged that CIA officials misled her and other lawmakers in 2002 by not saying they had already begun waterboarding suspects.
