Google: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange new book

 WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sets his sights on Google in a new book, claiming the Internet giant is in bed with the U.S. government. 

In the book "The New Digital Age," Assange discussed about his meeting with Schmidt and Cohen three years ago. The book published last year.

"I asked Eric Schmidt to leak U.S. government information requests to WikiLeaks, and he refused, suddenly nervous, citing the illegality of disclosing Patriot Act requests," Assange writes. 

Assange writes that the Google Ideas chief "could be wryly named Google’s 'director of regime change.'" And for review of "The New Digital Age," claiming it "failed to deliver."

The 43-year-old Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for two years in the wake of rape allegations in Sweden. He filed an appeal against the arrest warrant, and a long-awaited decision is expected sometime Monday.
