Nov 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Governor-Elect of New York, Andrew Cuomo has made a statement which, according to the Associated Press shows that he is very much against the professed mastermind of the attacks on the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 being tried in in New York.

Cuomo made statements to the effect in a radio interview which he gave on Thursday, which was one day after the Attorney General, Eric Holder stated that the Obama Administration was very close to choosing a place for the trial to commence.
