JimMCD For VICE's upcoming piece on post-war Iraq, premiering on HBO tomorrow night at 11, we interviewed Congressman Jim McDermott of the Seventh District of Washington State. Congressman McDermott has been one of the only experts and advocates in the US government on the issue of depleted uranium in Iraq. We sat down with him to get a firsthand account of the military's history of using depleted uranium munitions, the legacy it has left behind in Iraq, and why the US government refuses to do anything about it.



Watch more over at hbo.vice.com and tune in tomorrow at 11 PM on HBO to watch the full episode.

Also, earlier today, VICE producers Eddy Moretti and Jason Mojica, along with Congressman McDermott, were guests on HuffPost Live to discuss the rise in birth defects and abnormalities in Iraq. Watch the episode here:
