Is it possible for an elasticsearch delete to fail quietly?

Is it possible for an Elasticsearch delete call (Tire.index("xxx").remove
for those using the ruby client) to return an error code that still leaves
the item I'm trying to delete in the index?

ie: no exception is thrown but the document I thought was deleted is still
hanging around?
