The use of word "when" clarifies the sequence of two events. Hence we should use past tense instead of perfect tense. Perfect tense along with when will be redundant. Hope it helps bishalpodder.

Also, noticing that "Eisenhower administration had allowed..." -> B distorts the original meaning as well.
