According to his plea Monday, Al-Dellemy shredded documents at the Iraqi Embassy in Washington that identified Iraqi intelligence agents working in the U.S.
Al-Dellemy faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison when he's sentenced in March. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to act as an agent for a foreign government.
At least a dozen people have been charged by the Justice Department since the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq with acting as illegal agents for Hussein's government or his intelligence service.
