Impossible for Sayid to kill MIB?

I just wanted to hear your opinions on this one. Dogan sends Sayid to kill FLocke with the sword and says "but do not let him speak, if he speaks to you its too late". Sayid tries to kill Flocke, but unsuccessfully..... Flocke then states that "Dogan sent you out here knowing that you wouldnt be able to kill me, Dogan wanted me to kill you!" I just wanted to get some feedback on what you guys think..... Was Flocke telling the truth? Did Dogan send Sayid out there knowing it would be impossible for Sayid to kill MIB? OR Did Sayid fail because FLocke spoke to him first?
