KUDOS

a - "developed only after when" sounds unidiomatic, plus it has passive voice
b - same as a, the right version should have been "developed only after Harry Truman supported..."
c - ok, no mistakes, something developed after something, parallelism is ok
d - too wordy and awkward
e - "there being" is unidiomatic

C is better than B, so I'll go with C.

Is it okay to use 'after when' as written in Options A and B?

I thought either one - 'after' or 'when', but not both, should be used.
