Is it possible to use an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II on Verizon in the US?

So my brother generously gave me a Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100) phone for my birthday, but unfortunately it seems that Verizon decided not to carry that particular brand of phone. I am pretty sure, from looking at the wiki of both the phone
and verizon wireless
, that the phone is capable of running on the Verizon network. And I know that Verizon does have SIM cards for some of their devices. So theoretically, I'd think it would be possible to use one of their SIM cards in the phone and it would work. When I went to the Verizon store, however, even the manager told me that there was no way they could make it work.
So I guess my question is this: Was this due to technical issues, or is it just Verizon's internal policy not allowing any non-Verizon branded phones on their network?
