US attempts to divert attention from US-led wars: Paul Craig Roberts

Although Washington has struck a rudimentary deal regarding the “fiscal cliff”, the real issues plaguing America are not being addressed, a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury tells Press TV.

This comes as the White House and congressional Republicans have reached an agreement on Monday to avert the so-called fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts, while US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on December 27 that “the country hit its debt ceiling.” America’s debt currently stands at over USD 16 trillion.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury, from Florida, to further discuss the issue.
