US accused of funding Somali warlords

Somalia's sort-of president has accused the US of funding warlords in his country. Abdullahi Yusuf, who was elected to the presidency by parliamentarians, claims the US is supporting warlords in the country's capital who are targeting alleged al-Qaeda members. The warlords in question are also members of parliament and thus presumably have some sort of im(m/p)unity from prosecution. Not exactly the best thing to be encouraging in a state that's been lawless for 15 years.
