Forced to defend your country's ideas?

Back in the days of the Vietnam war, I noticed that Americans traveling abroad were forced to defend US foreign policy even if they did not agree with it. This is happening now. So should Americans be blindly loyal and defend something they may hate, should they be totally honest, or something in between?
It seems that there is a middle course, defending the intentions and goals of the nation while acknowledging that you might have done it differently.
