the words "embarrassment for" But I think, at the very least, we're going to see some embarrassment for the United States, when some of the stuff that the CIA was, in fact, doing in the first years after September 11th are revealed publicly, and that's going to, I think, be quite controversial in other countries. What is "some embarrassment for the United States"?

"To be embarrased" is the verb form. Embarrasment is the noun. To say that "there will be embarrassment" or "embarrassment was caused by..." is the "passive voice". This phrase alone: "There will be embarassement for the U.S." tells us who will be embarrassed, but does not tell us who (or what) caused the embarrassment.
