Yes, I know, I know, I am feeding a troll here... guilty as charged.

If that is considered as a simple bald assertion, it fails on many

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy_of_many_questions is likely

Much of the context has been removed. The simplified form "didn't know"
lacks quite a bit of the required specifity to be answered in any meaningful
way, when the issues are as complex as they clearly are in this case.
