A) that the conditions in Kabul were worsening due to burgeoning American support as a result of inserting : due to = caused by, so awkward meaning, insertion is better than inserting
B) conditions in Kabul that were worsening being American support was burgeoning, which resulted from the insertion : , which refers to the burgeoning ; which is wrong.
C) that the conditions in Kabul were worsening due to American support, which was burgeoning by the insertion : Same error as in A
D) that the conditions in Kabul were worsening because American support was burgeoning as a result of insertion : Correct
E) conditions in Kabul that were worsening due to American support that was burgeoning, resulting from the insertion : Same error as in A
