New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg — better known in the N.Y. tabloids as “Bloomy” — wants Atty. Gen. Eric Holder Jr. to make up his mind already about where he’ll try five 9/11 suspects including the alleged mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the New York Post reports.

Quoting a response to a caller on his weekly radio show on WOR, Bloomberg said:

“I’ve given them my opinion. They can do what they want. I do think they should do it in the sense of making a decision one way or another. I hope the decision is to have the trials elsewhere.”

Holder this week told the Senate Judiciary Committee that no final decision on the matter had been made, and expressed opposition to any move to mandate that suspected terrorists be prosecuted in military trials only.

Bloomberg had come out against a New York trial,  echoing sentiments of many New Yorkers and Republicans on Capitol Hill.
