I don't see any failures in the recent logs.  Has cloudlaunch worked for you 

A few more questions:

When did this occur?
Were you restarting an existing cluster, or starting a new one?
Using existing keypairs or a new one?
And, do the instances actually start even though there's no web response (if 
you look in the AWS terminal manually)?
