Short Staffed?

The Washington Post must be short staffed on competent reporters. How else to explain this preposterous article:

Iraqi troops and militias used ruses, ambushes and other guerrilla tactics yesterday that exploited the risks inherent in the fast-moving Pentagon war strategy, inflicting more than a score of American casualties and raising questions about how effective the U.S. approach has been in convincing Iraqi troops and civilians that President Saddam Hussein's removal is inevitable.

How could any reasonable person think that a handful of casualities and the long-predicted Iraqi use of ruses, ambushes and other guerrilla tactics raises significant questions about the invasion of an entire country?
