How many Middle East envoys does Obama have?

In this official Saudi news agency picture, King Abdullah meets John Brennan to get a "message" from Barack Obama. Interestingly, both Brennan's job and those of the Saudi attendees at the meeting would rank as interior counterterrorism stuff and not diplomacy. It seems that Brennan also went to Yemen. This suggests that something is being cooked up about Guantanamo Bay. The odd thing is, it sounded like Daniel Fried had been given the Gitmo closure job.
