U.S. citizen here. The difference is that China or Russia can't use their information against me. The NSA can pass the snooped info (possible gained from their BFFs in the UK or Canada) to any other U.S. agency as evidence that can be used to prosecute me.
At any time in the future the database of my communications can be sifted to determine if I am a "person of interest" by whatever the criteria du jour happen to be.
