Well, they said it shouldn’t be done. Actually, it was more like they said there really was no point in doing it. Really, though, they said that they weren’t exactly sure what the hell you were trying to accomplish, so there was no conceivable way to judge whether or not it couldn’t be done, or whether you’d done it. There was a small conclave of observers that said that you evidently had already done whatever it was you were doing, so saying “they said it couldn’t be done” was superfluous at that point, but they wanted to say “they said it couldn’t be done” anyway, to indicate that you had, indeed done that thing you were not supposed to be able to do, if that was it, I think it was.
