Rachel Maddow: Pelosi Questions Obama Iraq Plan (VIDEO)

***UPDATED WITH VIDEO OF FULL INTERVIEW***

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday voiced concern over the planned size of a residual force to be left in Iraq. The California Democrat told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that she "completely agree[d]" that 50,000 seems like "an awful lot." She added that the president has not made an official statement on the plan, so "I don't know what the justification is for 50,000." The 50,000 number comes from administration officials, but President Obama has yet to approve the final details. Watch the interview below.
