Putting this out there in the run-up to Obama's speech today:

Obama in the New York Times yesterday: "Iraq is not the central front in the war on terrorism."

Petraeus at a DoD briefing in April 2007: "Iraq is, in fact, the central front of al Qaeda's global campaign and we devote considerable resources to the fight against al Qaeda Iraq."

Sure, the Petraeus statement was delivered more than a year ago, but I haven't seen any statements from him  indicating otherwise in the interim. If there are, I'm happy to link.
