AUSTIN BAY EMAILS that the Libya WMD announcement is more proof of the "cascading effects" of Saddam's capture:

Qadaffi turns in his WMD -- it's a cascading effect of knocking off the Baath dictatorship, demonstrating terrorism doesn't pay, and capturing Saddam. You linked to the cascading effects column. Knocking the strong man myth is a huge dividend. FWIW, I had a commentary on NPR this morning discussing how the "tongue depressor video" is an Oscar winner for video short promoting justice and the rule of law.

Here's a link to Bay's NPR piece. And here's a link to the cascading effects piece that I mentioned earlier, in case you missed it.
