Your point being?

I presume it goes like this: NSA is  "a government based
organisation" doing, among other things, violations of civil rights.

So any other government based organisation cannot be trust, end of

Well I just talked  about a service, which provides certificates to its
citizen. That means it signs a public/private key pair, which is
generated by the, hopefully open source, crypto module of your browser.

So either you claim to have evidence that this modules have been hacked
and the key pair is transferred to some of these evil organisations or I
really don't see your point.
