Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates arrived in Kabul late Monday for meetings with government leaders and military commanders to discuss how to speed economic and political development at a time of increasing violence. The senior Defense Department official, aboard Mr. Gates's plane, said, ''We are seeing early indicators that there may be some stepped-up activity by Al Qaeda.'' No details were offered. The official cautioned, ''It's pretty hard to pull trends out of a few indications,'' but added that even tentative evidence of increased Qaeda activity in Afghanistan ''is something we are concerned with.'' The official spoke on standard rules of anonymity to discuss intelligence on Al Qaeda and Mr. Gates's agenda before the secretary's third trip to Afghanistan during his first year in office.
