Can a deficiency judgment be pursued on an HAFA short sale?

Question Details:

I just closed a short sale in WA. I have an FHA loan with a lender that approved my sale under HAFA (Home Affordable Mortgage Alternatives) but the sale agreement is silent with respect to deficiency judgements. I feel protected in 2 ways so that I will not be pursued regarding a deficiency: 1) having only 1 loan in a non-recourse state, and 2) HAFA short sales provide that lenders cannot pursue deficiencies. Should I still feel at risk with the silence on deficiency judgment in my short sale agreemnt? I was on working visa and when I lost my job I had to leave the country but I just want to do things right.
