After ten years on the lam, an international fugitive wanted on eco- terrorism charges in Oregon and in four other Western states, is behind bars.  Canadian citizen Rebecca Rubin, 39, surrendered to the FBI Thursday in Blaine, Washington. The U.S. Attorney's office in Portland says she will return to Oregon to face federal arson and conspiracy charges in the largest eco-terrorism case in U.S. history. The Oregon charges include a 1997 arson at the BLMS' Wild Horse and Burro Facility near Burns and the 1998 attempted arson at the Medford offices of U.S. Forest Service Industries, Inc.  Ten other members of the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front have already been prosecuted, two more are still on the run.
