As Twitchy reported earlier, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte apparently made it back to the United States Wednesday after a judge in Brazil had ordered that he and James Feigen stay put while authorities looked into their claim that they had been robbed at gunpoint. The order to seize his passport was as good as a starting pistol as far as Lochte was concerned.

Surprisingly, the U.S. seems to have a full-blown international incident on its hands, as swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, whose passports had not been ordered seized, were nabbed at the airport before they could take off.

It’s not even known at this point if Lochte and crew were lying about being robbed or not. Is Brazil just trying to save face, or is the evidence there to suggest something fishy was going on with the swim team?

For his part, Lochte spoke with NBC’s Matt Lauer Wednesday night and changed some of the details of his story.

Um …

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren wants some senators on the phone, now.

President Obama is taking this vacation pretty seriously and hasn’t had a lot to say about anything; no way is he getting involved. So … Secretary of State Kerry?
