Other than that, every other word in the New York Times article is accurate and verifiable

"Correction: April 26, 2014 

An earlier version of this article misstated Abdullah Abdullah’s ethnic background and the ethnicity of his father. Mr. Abdullah  is part Pashtun; it is not the case that he is “non-Pashtun,” and his father was Pashtun, not Tajik. The article also referred incorrectly to Afghanistan’s political history. It has had several non-Pashtun leaders in the last three centuries; it is not the case that there have been none during that time. And the article misstated the turnout in this year’s presidential election compared with the turnout in 2009. It was about 50 percent higher this year, not “nearly double.”"
