Frederick, Maryland-AP -- Two men wanted in connection with the sniper case reportedly had voiced anti-American feelings.Police issued an arrest warrant last night for 42-year-old John Allen Muhammad, who they say is wanted on a federal weapons charge unrelated to the sniper case. He was said to be traveling with a juvenile identified by a law enforcement source as 17-year-old Lee Malvo.Police haven't said if two men arrested at a rest stop in Maryland this morning are Muhammad and Malvo. Broadcast news reports say they are.Federal sources tell the Seattle Times that Muhammad and Malvo were both known to speak sympathetically about the nine-eleven hijackers in the wake of the terror attacks.But the sources say neither man is believed to be associated with the al-Qaida terror network.The Times reports Muhammad was stationed at Fort Lewis in Washington in the 1980s, had served in the Gulf War and was later stationed at Fort Ord in California.The Times says Malvo went to high school in Bellingham, Washington last year. Authorities say he's a citizen of Jamaica.F-B-I agents earlier searched a rental home in Tacoma, Washington, that may be linked to the sniper case.A federal source had said authorities were looking for two "people of interest," including one who had been connected to Fort Lewis, which is near Tacoma.
