The court said Biden had overstepped his powers in cancelling more than $400 billion in debt, in an effort to alleviate the financial burden of education that hangs over many Americans decades after they finished their studies.

President Joe Biden attacked his own administration late this week for saying that his actions in Afghanistan in 2021 led to “serious consequences” and failures as U.S. forces pulled out from the country.

The report from the U.S. State Department said that the decision “to end the U.S. military mission in Afghanistan had serious consequences for the viability of the Afghan government and its security.”

The report found that “there was insufficient senior-level consideration of worst-case scenarios and how quickly those might follow” and that the administration “failed to establish a broader task force as the situation in Afghanistan deteriorated in late July and early August 2021.”

Biden was asked about the report at the end of a press conference on Friday that he held to discuss the Supreme Court ruling his student loan bailout was unlawful.

“Mr. President, do you admit failure in Afghanistan? Mistakes?” a reporter asked. “There was a — there was a report on Afghanistan withdrawal, saying there was failure, mistakes. Do you admit there was mistakes during the withdrawal and before?”

“No, no,” Biden shot back. “All the evidence is coming back.”

“Do you remember what I said about Afghanistan? I said al Qaeda would not be there,” he said. “I said it wouldn’t be there. I said we’d get help from the Taliban. What’s happening now? What’s going on? Read your press. I was right.”
