At a press conference, she denied knowing that waterboarding was being implemented, and instead blamed the CIA for not being clear about the use of the procedure. From Fox News:

Under a barrage of questioning, Pelosi also again adamantly insisted that she was not aware that waterboarding or other enhanced interrogation techniques were being used on terrorism suspects and 

"I am telling you they told me they approved these and said they wanted to use them but said they were not using waterboarding," she said. 

The CIA immediately denied Pelosi's charges.
