SNL Takes On Terror Tactics In Yemen (VIDEO)

SNL opened last night with a sketch taking on the nation's decision to send funds to Yemen. In the press conference announcing the agreement, President Ali Abdullah Saleh (Fred Armisen) seemed a tad oblivious to what Gen. David Petraeus (Will Forte) had in mind for the funds and the anti-terrorist measures that Yemen was being instructed to take -- you know, like no gasoline on planes

While Saleh didn't seem to have a grasp on the plan - or whether or not Yemen was supposed to increase or decrease the nation's number of al Qaeda - he seemed quite excited to be receiving the U.S.'s money.
