    Not only should criticism and pushback not be mainly "about" Obama, Greenwald or Snowden,

    it should also fundamentally not be "about" the particular culture of American politicians, voters or citizens,

    because the most basic risks of power abuse are similar in any country and government that reaches certain levels of size and/or power,

    and because provoking reflexive defensiveness about "our country" is a major reason why we encounter difficulty in opening people's eyes to many risks.
