Good catch. Of course, I don't know whether this was an issue with the translation or if Kishi honestly forgot about what Konan and Obito talked about. That chapter was less than two years ago, so it's weird that he's forgotten about it.

So yes, if this isn't a translation error it's definitely a plot hole. It's relatively small compared to some of the other things that have happened recently, but it's still a real plot hole.
